Droning Bells

I am pleased to announced the release of an album titled Droning Bells. This recording is the final creative outcome of a year long Honours degree that I have just completed at the Victorian College of the Arts. My research worked towards the development of an alternative approach to solo electric bass practise and performance. I intentionally focused on bringing forward key technical aspects of electric bass playing that use minimal musical material, executed at slow tempos, with specific utilisation of low frequency resonance and dissonance in low registers. I worked within compositional frameworks, employing techniques developed by Arvo Pärt, and Nicolas Slonimsky, as well as an aesthetic framework drawing from Drone metal band Sunn O))). Droning Bells comprises of four solo electric bass compositions performed by myself. Each composition involves improvisation.  To listen, please follow the link https://mickmeagher.bandcamp.com/album/droning-bells
